This week, our dynamic duo of presenters, Scott Douglas and Peter Laing, analyse some of the biggest topics making the headlines including whether mobile flash and Silverlight are dying a quick death in the world of mobile technology, and how Stumbleupon is helping print media outlets.
The pair then turn their attention to twitter and social media, where they look at the world’s top news tweeters, how the Scottish Parliament has banned twitter during sessions, and the rise of Google plus for businesses.
As ever, all the links to the topics discussed are in the shownotes below.
